Lovesongs & Reproaches

Passionate Conversations With God
By Bill Countryman
Out of Stock
An extended conversation with God that ranges from complaint to joy, anger to love. Drawing upon a lifetime of such dialogues, Bill Countryman grapples with the reality of evil and loss, as well as hope and the possibility of fulfilment. The author's lyrical style owes much to the poetry of the Psalms, Job and the Song of Solomon, but moves freely in the realm of ordinary spoken English.
